Sheet Pan Beef Nachos

Sheet pan beef nachos are a quick and easy dinner or snack. Perfect to feed a crowd or movie night in with the family.

Sheet Pan Beef Nachos

Take these to any level you like. I made a separate sheet pan nachos vegetarian for my daughter, just as easy. Pick and choose what you like on your nachos and customize it to your taste.

Who doesn’t love the easy one-pan cook and clean-up? Ok, so you use another pan to saute the ground beef. But that clean-up happens while the nachos are in the oven, so no biggie.

  • We use shredded sharp cheddar cheese and Monterey Jack cheese. But you can use queso dip, cheese sauce, or a Mexican blend. It’s your choice!
  • If you don’t like black beans as much as we do, try pinto beans or refried beans. Sheet pan nachos are completely customizable.
  • It’s best to prep all the ingredients before you assemble the nachos. Shred the cheese, chop the fresh vegetables, and drain the beans.
  • Toss in some diced bell peppers while the meat is browning.

How to Make Sheet Pan Beef Nachos

Preheat the oven to 400ยบ degrees F.

Cover a baking sheet with heavy-duty foil, and spray lightly with cooking spray.

Mix together in a small bowl the chili powder, paprika, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, sea salt, and cayenne pepper.

Brown the ground beef, add the taco seasoning, and cook for another minute or two.

Spread a single layer of tortilla chips on the sheet pan. Spread the ground beef and then the black beans evenly over the chips.

Bake until heated through and the cheese is melted.

Sprinkle on all your favorite toppings. Try our Fire Roasted Salsa or Roasted Tomatillo Salsa Verde recipe.

We used fresh diced tomatoes, fresh sliced jalapenos, diced green onions, and cilantro.  Serve with sour cream drizzled over the top or on the side.

I slice up a lime for those of us that enjoy a fresh squeeze on our nachos.

How long do nachos take in the oven?

They only take about 5-10 to warm through and melt the cheese.

How do you keep sheet pan nachos from getting soggy?

We have never had this problem, they are eaten immediately! But you can sprinkle a layer of cheese over the chips, and bake them for a few minutes until the cheese is melted. The cheese will act as a barrier for the chips.


These sheet pan nachos with black beans are best served fresh. If you happen to have leftovers store them in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in a 350-degree oven for about 10 minutes or until warmed and the cheese is melted.
